Thailand Futures Exchange's new trading and clearing systems go live

Bangkok, May 6, 2014 - The Thailand Futures Exchange PCL (TFEX), under the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) group, announced the successful launch of its new derivatives trading and clearing systems today, operating smoothly on the same platform as the equities trading's SET CONNECT. With well-proven technology by Cinnober and developed by Korea Exchange, the new systems provide cross-asset class trading efficiently and could support multi-currency and multi-market trading.
SET and TFEX Chairman SathitLimpongpan said "This development is part of SET's  three-year strategy (2014-2016) aiming to boost efficiency of its infrastructure in connecting to global capital markets, thus strengthening its capabilities.

It will also increase SET's international competitiveness among the world's leading stock exchanges, as well as supporting future expansions of the Thai capital market."
TFEX Managing Director KesaraManchusree said that the integration of the two  trading systems to become a single platform enables investors to design strategic trading for the cross-asset class efficiently. With a world-class multi asset platform based on high performance and flexible solution, the new clearing system helps increase capacity of risk management following international standard, supports real-time connectivity to clearing houses with
depository and settlement services worldwide, as well as multi-market and multi-currency trading.
"We have received great cooperation from all broker members in testing the new  systems for over months before going live. This will certainly ensure investors that the new platform is secure and stable, as well as capable of meeting current and future trading demands efficiently," Kesara added.
Today is also the launch of mini SET50 Futures, designed to reduce its contract  size to be one-fifth that of the current SET50 futures. It was received well response with trading volume of 84,609 contracts, while the total trading volume  of TFEX was 214,960 contracts worth of THB 21.30 billion.

Vietnam index hits near 3-month low on high volume

Vietnam's benchmark stock index  fell to a near three-month low in an active trading session on Tuesday, hurt by widespread selling by retail investors.

About 70 percent of stocks lost ground, dragging the index  down to its lowest close since Feb. 11, Reuters data showed.
"Investors, especially retailers who practiced trading on margin, were tapering their risk appetite," said deputy manager Nguyen Hoai Nam of Maybank Kim Eng Securities.

The country's two biggest listed firms led the losses, with PetroVietNam Gas   falling 1.51 percent and dairy product maker Vinamilk   dropping 2.92 percent.
Trading was active, but mostly due to withdrawals by investors who now preferred to stay on the sideline, Nam added.
The index closed down 1.72 percent at 555.11, with trading volume almost double the five-day average level. Over 100 million shares changed hands on Tuesday, Reuters data showed.
 With the index in its downward trend after gaining as much as 20 percent during the first quarter of 2014, analysts expect Vietnamese equities market to move range-bound in coming weeks.
 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Thai shares fall ahead of court ruling on Prime Minister

Thai stocks fell to their lowest  in nearly three weeks on Tuesday as investors cashed in on recent gains ahead of a court ruling on Wednesday in an abuse of power case against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
Thai SET index  finished down 1.2 percent at 1,404.01, the lowest close since April 16.  
Shares of Banpu Pcl   were among top percentage losers, down 4.1 percent. The stock hit a four-month high last  week on expectations that the coal miner would post strong earnings for the January-March quarter on the back of high coal sales.
Shares of Vietnam were among underperformers, with the benchmark stock index   sliding to a near three-month low amid widespread selling by retail investors.
 In Jakarta, shares   eased 0.2 percent as recent weak first quarter GDP growth kept investors wary ahead of Bank Indonesia's policy meeting on Thursday. 
Indonesia's central bank is expected to keep its benchmark policy rate  unchanged, as pressures over inflation and a widening current-account deficit have eased, a Reuters poll showed.  
Domestic investors led among sellers in the region while foreign investors recorded modest net buying after a subdued session due to holidays in key Asian markets, including Japan
Malaysian shares recorded foreign inflows of 25.14 million ringgit ($7.7 million), Philippine a net 479.2 million peso ($10.8 million) and Indonesia a net 102.4 billion rupiah ($8.9 million), stock exchange and Thomson Reuters data showed.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
